Buy E-Cigarettes with Paypal

Thursday, 28 April 2016  |  Admin

You like to vape. And you like to use PayPal. The chances are you’ve noticed a problem with the compatibility of the two over the last few years; PayPal have restricted the sale of the majority of e-cigs and similar products.

But not for us.

It doesn’t matter whether you are an international business or an individual trying to flog a few extra bottles on EBay, PayPal class e-cigs under the same regulations as tobacco products and as such, it’s a big no no.

Unless you’re Vape Mountain!

Over at Vape Mountain, we know better; e-liquids are not tobacco (the closest you come is just the flavour) and can be purchased without any nicotine. But alas, there is nothing we can do to change their minds. PayPal have been known to block the accounts of companies trading in these products.

Have I mentioned that we’re okay though?


Who Does this Affect?

This restriction has more of an impact in the US than it does this side of the pond. In the UK, businesses can use PayPal to process the sale of e-cigs and their paraphernalia if they are pre-approved by PayPal themselves.

Guess what? We are!

Falling under their pre-approved regulations, PayPal highlight the following:

`Providing file sharing services or access to newsgroups; or selling alcoholic beverages, non-cigarette tobacco products, e-cigarettes or prescription drugs/devices.`

So if you want to deal in any of these things, you must first have consent from PayPal or you’ll find yourself in hot water. Steam is bad: vape is good.

Here at Vape Mountain, we are one of the lucky ones who have been pre-approved!

What Does This Mean?

It means you can still use PayPal to purchase from us. Some of you may prefer the PayPal system, others may be wary of using a credit/debit card online. Whatever your reason for choosing PayPal over other payment methods, you can rest assured that you will not be penalised for it when shopping with Vape Mountain.

Despite the controversy surrounding PayPal’s decision to block most transitions regarding e-cigs, e-juices and other such products, it will have no impact on our dealings with you as a customer. There are no loopholes, no hidden catches: we can use PayPal to process your order. Discussion closed.

How Does This Help?

For some of you, it may mean nothing. You might always choose to pay by card and nothing has changed there. But for others, it means you have a reliable source you can purchase your e-liquids from without having to worry whether PayPal is going to try and close your account!

Also, no one is going to deny you your source of e-liquids. If you’ve just established what flavours you like and have created the blend of all blends, rest assured that you can continue purchasing without suddenly stumbling across a barrier you weren’t expecting and haven’t planned for.

Explore Vape Mountain to find the right flavour e-juice for you. And don’t forget; you can purchase using PayPal!
